What can we do in Da Nang? Here are some recommendations from us.
- Catch the sunrise on My Khe Beach
If you rent a hotel near My Khe Beach in Da Nang, don’t miss an opportunity to refresh yourself after a long sleep and welcome a new day coming with your beloved ones. Voted by Forbes magazine, My Khe beach with 900 meters long coastline is considered the most attractive beach on the planet. The TripAdvisor community has also commented that My Khe Beach is one of the 10 most popular Asian beaches in the world.
After catching the sunrise, you can run along the beach to get exercises, then go swimming and buy seafood home to process. If you like, you can participate in more activities such as: paragliding, paragliding by canoe on the sea, canoe pulling water slides, windsurfing, jet skiing, scuba diving to see corals, …
It seems that My Khe beach is ideal for both adults and children at any time of the year because the waves are calm, the sea is calm and the sea water always brings a beautiful and enchanting blue color. However, according to Da Nang travel experience, the most suitable time is probably still summer, from April to September. Avoid overcrowded times like April 30, May 1. It is best to go on normal days or go in June and July.
